Why You Should Have Book Tag

So, I’ve seen this book tag going around booktube lately and I thought it would be fun to try it out, being it my first book tag and all.

I’m basically going to say my opinion about a bunch of questions that have the phrase ‘totally should have” in them. Sounds like fun, right?

Let’s do it (!).

*A book that totally should have gotten a sequel*

I’m going with Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover on this one.

I just didn’t want this book to end. And when it did, I just wanted more. This book was AMAZING. I loved every single word of it, and all I want is more Sydney and Ridge! They are so perfect *sighing dreamily*.

I would have LOVED to get another book with those characters!

All this talk about Maybe Someday makes me want to re-read it for the 6th time.

If you haven’t read this book yet – what have you been doing with your life? READ IT.

*A book series that totally should have

Tips To Living Your Dreams

The other day I pulled the above book from my bookshelves in order to re-read it. I find whenever I re-read a book after a period of time, I discover something new within its pages. A little gem of an idea I had missed before. I can never throw interesting books out I just buy more book shelves. Neither would I get the same enjoyment reading from a mechanical device, I like the feel of the pages and the book in my hands.

It is an unusual book; on the pack of each page are quotes from influential people on all manner of things. Words of wisdom; you can either contemplate them as you turn the pages or ignore them and press on with the main message of the chapter, if you are eager to discover the road to your dreams.

It is a work book taking you through a series of activities to find your ultimate dream. First you discover your dream, then through the pages you are given techniques for achieving it whatever it might be.

The Two Gods of the Bible and the Confusion They Cause

Yes, there are two distinct Gods in the bible and one of them is an invention. How do I know? I have memory of reincarnation and a link to the Spirit of the Universe, the only true Creator. The next question is why has the Spirit allowed this to happen? The answer is more difficult and protracted. It will suffice to state, however, that it is for a test of one’s loyalty to the Spirit and ability to remove oneself from religions.

Religions are all based on prophets that have supposedly spoken for God. They reinforce the power and control that institutions gain over their coverts and promise an eternity of great things, as opposed to that of eternal suffering for those who do not comply.

When first looking into them the most obvious common denominator was their timing. They all came about during an 800-1000 years’ period and they are the result of kings accepting them, or so we are led to believe.

The subject here is the two Gods of the bible and this is the most confusing aspect for students of it. The Old Testament proclaims the Spirit as the only

Tips To Get The Point During Reading

Why is that important you might ask, well if your message is clear and to the point your recipient will know exactly what you are talking about. In business clear messages save time and misunderstandings and this is equally important in every-day life. The conversations do not need to be terse of formal just clear and to the point.

Once you have mastered the techniques you will have learned to focus your thinking, speaking and writing. Your conversations won’t wander aimlessly up a blind alley. You will become more logical and easier to listen to, the result a better success rate in your endeavour.

30 seconds is probably the amount of time a person can concentrate, so to catch their attention and get your message across aim to do it in 30 seconds. If you consider adverts on TV they are condensed into bites of around 30 seconds. Why, because it has been found the most successful amount of time for people to absorb the content.

“The little book How to Get your Point across in 30 seconds” by Milo O Frank gives you all the pointers necessary to improve your communication skills. It covers areas like knowing your single objective not complicating

The Greatest Post Apocalyptic Books

Post-apocalypse is a classic theme of science fiction, where mankind is knocked back into oblivion after something really, really bad happens. Of course, after the dropping of atomic bombs, people for the first time realized that mankind possessed the power to bring about its own apocalypse. However, nuclear holocaust is not the only way catastrophe can strip the thin veneer of civilization of mankind. In the distant, mythical past, the Great Flood almost brought about apocalypse, leaving Noah and his family in a post-apocalyptic scenario. Many such possibilities as to how mankind would respond to overwhelming devastation have been presented to us in science fiction post-apocalyptic books, such as the ones listed below.

1. The Road

An arid world in the aftermath of an unknown severely destructive event is introduced in Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. The dreary landscape now has only a few remaining survivors who are looking for food and warmth. An unnamed father and son are followed in the book as they make their way across the destruction. People in this book’s post-apocalyptic world are turning into savage cannibals and the father is afraid of leaving his son alone because he is certain that he is dying. Nonetheless, the

How to Find the Most Interesting Book to Read

When people are bored, one of the coolest things they do is to grab a book and indulge themselves in reading it. Ever since before, books were created not just to give out valuable information to mankind, but as well as for them to kill time and achieve a sense of relaxation.

Today, you can find plenty of book stores situated everywhere. Some are small bookstores while others are huge enough for you to tour around in one day. And because of the advent of technology, books have now became digital. There is no need for people to visit a bookstore to buy books, because now they can buy them online and download the file and save for reading. It is pretty much easier these days as opposed to before, and the way you want to read a book completely depends on your own preferences.

For some, a hard bound book is the best one to read, but for others, they would prefer a digital copy of it. Whatever your preferences are, the important thing is to know which book to read.

Of course people want to read interesting books, considering that people want

Internet Marketing with E-books

E-books are one of the best and cheapest forms of merchandise available on the Internet today. We are now in the information age and everyone is reading books and using the internet for information, after all what is the internet for? Finding out the answers to questions and there is no better opportunity than providing these answers in the form of an e-book.

E-books have no overhead so you could sell over 10,000 books and all the revenue you generate is pure profit! It’s nothing less than amazing – selling something which costs you nothing!

E-books with Resale Rights

E-books with resale rights are an excellent source of income. You can buy or acquire an e-book for free, there are a lot of websites that have promotions for free e-books, try doing a Google Search for free e-books, some sites will have whole sections for free, also try signing up for site news letters that offer you free e-books as a joining incentive (we will look at news letter generators later.) When you have your e-books you can sell them to others for 100% profit, that is the beauty of resale rights and digital products

And Old Book, a New Bestseller

It’s often said that it can’t be done… but anything is possible if you have a brutal seller’s mindset. Bear in mind that every book is a product. Whether it’s a new releases, an old book, a 50-page story, an 800-page epic, fiction, or nonfiction… they all have something in common when it comes to Amazon. As far as Amazon’s search engines are concerned, all of these books are just other products and their ID is – from their point of view – just a unique ASIN. Neither age, nor gender, nor history matters. All that matters is how well a certain ASIN is likely to sell.

So many authors have published their works expecting their books on Amazon to somehow sell themselves, and even possibly appear on Amazon’s top chart – oh, to have such confidence must be a wonderful thing! With some books having substantial marketing budget behind themselves, and some others represented by marketing professionals, many self-published books are unfortunately destined to disappear in the backgrounds, and simply fail. The quality of the book always matter, but nobody could deny that quality alone doesn’t sell books. Professional sales strategy and big advertising budgets

The 4 Reasons Why Everyone Will Want To Read Your New Book

There are four reasons why people will want to read the new book you are writing, and if you include them all, you will have a best-seller.

The 1st Reason Why People Will Read Your New Book

First and foremost, people like to be entertained. And while it may seem like by deliberately setting out to entertain people with your writing that you are dumbing it down or selling out, you really aren’t. People read books or watch television because it is an escape, and an escape has to be entertaining on some level or people will avoid it. Even if it is good for them.

And if you want someone to actively seek out your book, you will have to make it entertaining so they will look forward to reading it as much as they like watching videos on YouTube.

The 2nd Reason Why People Will Read Your New Book

People need to be inspired. And the highest thing your book can achieve is to inspire someone to do better. An inspiring book is something that a person will never forget reading, even if it only helps them change one aspect

How Book Design and Book Marketing Will Keep Your Book Alive

Too many authors spend all their time on writing, then scrimp on book design and book marketing. They hope that their publisher will handle all the details of book design and book marketing, so that they can just sit back and rake in the millions year after year.

Then, if these same authors decide to self-publish, they’ll quickly get lost in the morass of print on demand publishers and the time and money sink hole of self-publishing. In fact, most authors would rather die than think about book marketing, or spend money on book design.

Facing your book marketing competition

In 2005, around 172,000 books were published with an ISBN number, according to Bowker, which compiles publishing statistics. An ISBN number will get you into Books in Print, and allows your book to be distributed to bookstores and online sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble. According to some sources, nearly one quarter of these books were printed by Print on Demand (POD) companies.

I’d estimate that number to be much higher, as many small publishers are having their books printed by Lightning Source, which also provides printing for many of the larger
